I really don’t know what to write about right now. Do you ever have days where you feel like you don’t have anything to write about? It’s quite funny. As I sit here typing this at 9:50 pm Tuesday on a late July evening, I think to myself “I know I will have all sorts of ideas to write about once I go to bed.” I really should keep a journal with me so I can jot down the interesting and sometimes odd ideas that I come up with. They can be quite entertaining.

Ah, I know what I can write about. The royal baby. Not your typical royal baby talk. I am actually one of those people who is pretty sick of all of the talk and quite frankly, I do not really care about the royal baby being born (please note, I do not wish any ill will towards the royal family. I hope the media will leave them alone so they can have some peace and quiet and some family time!)

But you know what, after thinking about it for a little bit, I think I may know why people are so fascinated with this event. And I suppose it is somewhat fascinating. We’re talking about kings, queens, princes, princesses, realms, heirs to thrones and royalty. All of these topics have come together to create some great fantasy fiction, such as the Song of Ice and Fire series (see Game of Thrones if you are only familiar with the show.) I’m a fan of the Song of Ice and Fire series. I thought about some of the events that take place in that series: royal weddings, determining who is the rightful heir to the throne, celebration by the towns people in response to events that occur to the royal family. People enjoy fantasy. It gives them a sense of happiness and perhaps makes them forget about their troubles, if only for a moment. I think the fact that the royal family is still considered a royal family and still use titles such as queen, prince, princess, duke, duchess, etc is what fascinates people so much about this event. I think the same can be said about frenzy that erupted leading up to the royal wedding a couple of years ago.

Anyways, enough about royal babies. Let’s get to ice cream.

Recipe type: dessert
Serves: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • ½ C peanut butter
  • ⅓ C granulated white sugar
  • ½ C whole milk
  • 1 C heavy cream
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ C chopped mini peanut butter cups
  • ¼ C marshmallow cream
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, sugar and milk and beat with a mixer until well blended. Mix in the heavy cream and vanilla extract with a spoon.
  2. Pour the mixture into your ice cream mixer and mix until the mixture is thickened. This will take about 20 minutes but about 15 minutes in, or before the ice cream really starts to harden, add the marshmallow cream and peanut butter cups. Break up the marshmallow cream with a knife, if needed.
  3. Serve immediately if you prefer soft serve ice cream. If you prefer harder ice cream, freeze over night for best results.
Notes
Adapted from the Cuisnart Ice Cream Recipe Booklet

After freezing the ice cream for many hours, it will get rather hard. In order to easily scoop it, let it sit on the counter for about 10 minutes before serving. Can't wait that long? Put it in your microwave and let it heat for about 10-15 seconds. This will make it just soft enough to easily scoop.

    I sort of agree. I wish no ill will towards the Royal Family, it’s just that they are so removed from my every day-real world troubles! My current trouble is that I want this incredible ice cream right NOW!!! Seriously Julie, this is an incredible flavor!

    • says

      Agreed! I wish no ill will towards them either. I’ve always liked hearing things about them, mostly the two boys and Diana when she was still alive, but it seems like the hype has gotten out of control! But I am glad that this is all over with now. And I hope the media will leave them alone so they can have some peace and quiet! Also, I do have to say that I thought it was pretty rad that Prince William actually drove them back to their home rather than having a driver drive them.

      Thanks for stopping by, Tanya! This ice cream is so flippin good! I have to control myself so I don’t eat too much of it. I’ve been doing pretty good seeing as how I still have some left a week later!

    I’m over the royal baby stuff too – it’s just a baby, like so many others born every single day! This ice cream however, I wish it were sitting in my freezer lol! Pinned it :)

  3. says

    Haha, I agree. I’ve always been a little confused as to why there is so much media coverage about the royal family over here in the states. Wasn’t the whole point of America to not be involved in anything royal? Anyhoo, the ice cream looks awesome – Pinning :)

  4. says

    Ohhhhhhhhh mah gah this ice cream. Out of control. Love love love. And as for royal baby talk… I’ve had the TV off for days– That’s the trick to not hearing about it lol.

  5. says

    I just want to say Fluffernutter. FlufferNUTTER. FLUFFernutter. heh heh, proof that I can be entertained by just about anything! I don’t know if I could not eat all of this, looks fab!!

    • says

      Bawhahaha, you are so silly, Paula! :) I am also amused by the littlest things. Ah, just imagine how silly we will be if/when we meet in person! There will be tons of laughing going on!

  6. says

    Ok, Julie, this amazing ice cream has totally convinced me beyond a shadow of a doubt that I MUST get an ice cream maker!!! This looks WOW! Thanks for sharing – pinning and buffering, plus will share on FB tomorrow! :)

    • says

      Thank you, Claire! I love watching/reading the news so it’s hard to stay away from the gossip, no matter how hard I try. Plus, people at work talk about it and you see it all over the covers of magazines. *sigh* But at least it’s over with now!

      Hope you have a good weekend!

    I’m the same way. A lot of the times, I get writer’s block whenever I have to publish something. So, you’re not alone. But yes, enough about the royal baby. Let them have their baby in peace without the circus! Love this ice cream. Anything with peanut butter cup will get a “YES Please!” from me. :)

    • says

      I am seriously going to try to schedule out my blog posts instead of writing them the night before I want to post them! I think that may help with the writers block. Who knows, we shall see! I’m such a random person that it’s hard for me to schedule stuff in advanced. :)

  8. says

    Oh, I think it’s kinda fun to follow the Royal Family. I’m not obsessed, but do enjoy hearing about what’s going on. Did you ever watch you series “The Tudors”? It was on HBO or Showtime. It was about Henry the VIII. You should rent it. Fabulous!!!!! This ice cream sounds like a treat. Pinning on my I Scream board.

    • says

      I just think the hype got a little out of control! I think reading about the royal family is interesting but I don’t get involved in all of the hype. Let them be and give them some peace and quiet!
      I’ve never watched that show but I head it’s good. I think it is on Netflix Streaming. I’ll have to double check but it is a show that I would like to watch!

      Thanks for stopping by, Lea Ann!

    I popped over from the Grow Your Blog Hop and was so happy when I saw this recipe. I make my own homemade Marshmallow Fluff (the recipe is on my blog) and I’m always looking for recipes I can use it in. My family will LOVE this! Thanks for the amazing idea.

  11. says

    Hi Julie! Thank you so much for joining us and sharing this FABULOUS ice cream at Best of the Weekend. Pinning…again! :) Have a fabulous weekend! :)

  12. says

    My family would gobble this up! We love Peanut butter treats! Saw you at Will Cook for Smiles and ran on over!

    Would love to have you come over to Who Needs a Cape and link up to Super Sunday! :) Hope we see you there

  1. […] Peanut butter. Nutella. Two of my favorite things. Not necessarily together. Together or apart, I love ‘em both. I keep a jar of peanut butter in my desk at work. I’ve been known to have it sitting on top of my desk, plastic spoon sticking out of it. That’s right, I’ll eat it right out of the jar. That’s how I roll. Oh so not only do I like eating peanut butter out of a jar, I also just so happen to like cooking with it. And eating it. Savory or sweet, I do not discriminate. If you love peanut butter like me, then you’ll love this Thai Peanut Sauce with Whole Wheat Noodles. Or this Fluffernutter Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream. […]
